Base map and data from OpenStreetMap and OpenStreetMap Foundation

Canadian meteorological buoy data are collected by Environment and Climate Change Canada. This subset consisting of Lake Winnipeg meteorological buoy data is extracted from realtime buoy data hosted by the Canadian Integrated Ocean Observing System (CIOOS).

These buoys are seasonal and are placed in the lake at the beginning of the open water season and removed before ice cover in the fall (approximately May-October).Complete wave data from all meteorological buoys, models, and unofficial Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) observations can be found here.

Method Summary

In order to complement the observational network, Environment and Climate Change Canada operates a network of buoys across the country. This data becomes part of the collection of weather reports sent to the distribution network and is used to improve marine forecasting. The location, WMO identifiers and names of the Environment and Climate Change Canada buoys are given in the regional annexes. The Lake Winnipeg South Basin buoys are deployed annually in May or June, and retrieved in October. They provide hourly wind, air temperature, surface water temperature, and wave data.
